Two of Africa’s deadliest gladiators – hippos and crocs have lived side by side for millennia, but are they cozy bedfellows or arch-enemies?

Crocodiles prey off the carcasses of the weak and fallen; 100 million years of evolution has taught them to survive lean times and push forth the next generation.
